McKenzie Westmore Pens Personal Posts, Urging Fans Help to Renew Face Off

SYFY renewed competition series Face Off for a 13th season back in January, but it seems like an uncertain future after that.  The 13th season is set to air on June 5th on the cable channel, along with returning host McKenzie Westmore, who has been with the series since day one.

McKenzie Westmore Pens Personal Posts, Urging Fans Help to Renew Face Off

Her family ties to the world of cinema makeup are vast and generational, the Westmore family having been involved in Hollywood since 1917. She's said in a series of tweets posted late Friday night that her family has come together during the show's time on the air, and she's not ready for it to end.

MissionControl Media, who produce the series, announced the official release date of the 13th season.

McKenzie then posted on her instagram this post, stating that the season will be the last.

#Repost @missioncontrolm with @get_repost ・・・ It is with a great deal of sadness and disappointment that we report #Syfy has decided #season13 will be the final season of #FaceOff. This show means the world to us at Mission Control, and we appreciate the loyal and passionate support of our viewers more than we can possibly say. Thank you to all of the artists for bravely sharing their talent with the world, the amazing models, McKenzie, Glenn, Ve, Neville, Patrick, Lois, Michael Westmore, Derek, Mary, Peter and everyone else associated with the show. It's been an incredible run. #FaceOff returns June 5th for its final season.

And tonight, McKenzie took to her twitter to post several moving comments about what the show has meant to her and her family:

She also shared this petition, urging fans to help bring back Face Off on SYFY.
